Travis Galbraith signs with MFC; will debut at Hard Knocks
The very best in the MFC are true warriors. And now, the MFC is adding a “Gladiator” to its army.
Travis “The Gladiator” Galbraith has recently signed a contract to join the Maximum Fighting Championship and the former Pride veteran is expected to make an instant impact. Galbraith jumps right into the mix at MFC 21: Hard Knocks in one of the show’s featured bouts as he takes on light heavyweight contender David Heath.
“I believe Travis will immediately ignite the competitive fires in the MFC,” noted Mark Pavelich, MFC Owner/President.
“Travis fought in the MFC before and we are excited to have him return at this time when we are bringing in the very best fighters available to our organization. His upcoming fight with David Heath is undoubtedly going to be a very physical and high-impact matchup of two powerful bulls.”
Galbraith has an undefeated record in his three previous MFC contests – all three fights ending in the first round with a pair of knockouts and one submission. In fact, his last MFC bout at MFC 8: Resurrection was a 22-second demolition of opponent Chris Wilson.
Now sporting a 15-6 record, Galbraith could very well make a name for himself in the MFC’s light heavyweight or middleweight division. Galbraith, who has a pair of dominating first-round wins in 2008, previously held both 185- and 205-pound titles in smaller promotions. In fact with the door wide open in the 185-pound division, Galbraith could quickly get into the running for the MFC title originally captured by current UFC star Patrick “The Predator” Cote.
If he chooses to stay at light heavyweight, Galbraith could make his way into several interesting showdowns following a clash with Heath including Heath’s fellow Oklahoman Aron Lofton and perhaps a crack at current MFC 205-pound champ Emanuel “The Hardcore Kid” Newton. Longtime fans of the MFC are also still clamoring for a head-to-head meeting between Galbraith.
“I think Travis can dominate in whatever weight class he chooses to compete in – he can be a true force to be reckoned with,” added Pavelich.
